Mobile World Congress 2016, it's a wrap! Our feedback

Written by GoodBarber Team  on  Friday 26 February 2016

Mobile World Congress 2016 has been a very good edition for our team. It was the 4th participation of GoodBarber as an exhibitor, and the experience was full of intense pitches, demos, feedbacks and meetings.

Over the years, we get to see more and more friendly faces in the crowd and some of them have now become customers. It's always a good experience to meet with them in person. Having a chat with our customers is the most rewarding feeling and their feedback is valuable to keep on pushing ourselves to enhance GoodBarber. 

Mobile World Congress was also the perfect occasion to make contacts with other people in our industry and exchange ideas. This year, we organized a MeetUp to get together with our resellers, journalists, bloggers and anyone curious to have a chat in a more relaxed atmosphere about our product. We shared our big highlights for 2015 and gave a preview of what's in the pipe for 2016. It was amazing to discover the powerful use that some of the attendees are making of our product. It was very inspiring.

Sure MWC can be tiring at times, we probably drank too many cups of coffee for our own good, saw very little of Beautiful Barcelona, but, at the end of the day, we got the most energy from the people we met along the way!

Pushing for smarter notifications

blog_write_no_author  Thursday 14 January 2016

"It’s all about the notifications, not the apps", this quote by Fiona Spruill , head of global growth at Meetup, really struck a chord.

Not that we don’t believe in Beautiful Apps anymore ;) But, we do agree that push notifications are among the most effective tools you can use to engage your audience. However, as we have often stated, we also believe they can be your own worst enemy. Remember our blog post about 4 reasons apps get deleted? An invasive use of push notifications is often to blame.

10 Instagram Dos and Don'ts for Businesses

blog_write_no_author  Monday 7 December 2015

Users are increasingly turning to Instagram over other social platforms. Why? For starters, the content on Instagram is more universal than elsewhere. Also, it tends be more anonymous than Facebook. Although the irony isn’t lost on us that Facebook bought over Instagram for $1 billion… 

With that being said Instagram remains a very appealing outlet, especially for businesses looking to grow their brand and especially their brand’s image. Instagram is perfect to help make your brand identifiable, as long as you follow a few guidelines of course.

Because if social networks praise spontaneity, with Instagram in particular, when it comes down to marketing, a lot of thought actually goes into what is posted by brands. Images with the most reach are often carefully arranged to fit trending criteria (even when they have an effortless feel), with a clever caption to boot!

So, if you want to become a master of Instagram, here’s a few Instagram DOS and DON’TS to get your business on the right track. Read on!

What is the Future of Social Apps?

Written by Guest Post  on  Monday 30 November 2015

What a world we live in. Not too long ago, all cellphones could do was make calls, send out a few lines of text, and play simple, monochromatic games like Snake (though, let’s be honest – no mobile game has ever been better). Then, in 2007, came Apple's iPhone – this weird, newfangled device that many people initially scoffed at – and the entire mobile industry has never been the same. Thanks to the popularity of the iPhone, countless companies followed suit and soon rode the touchscreen smartphone wave, which pushed what Apple was initially going for into several bold, new directions. 

Nowadays, people are more connected than ever. The proliferation of smartphones with advanced mobile internet capabilities has made sure of that. And with the ability to easily and quickly download countless social apps with tons of rich media features, getting in touch with friends, family or colleagues has become more than just typing out simple messages. 

You can share photos, videos, life events, play games with friends, chat in real time, engage in video calls, and so much more. With a plethora of powerful social features already at any mobile device owner's disposal, one has to wonder: has the envelope been pushed as far as technologically possible? Where is all this headed?
